Always a fun day when we can push our limits a bit and do an 80’s inspired shoot. Yes, we channeled our early Run DMC and Cyndi Lauper to think breakdancing, awkward angles and Reaganomics. Been wanting to test out this location as well. It’s an art project on 10th street in Austin in the Castle Hill neighborhood. You can see the top of the castle in a few shots. Our models for the day were a mix to me. Jenny Lynn and I have worked together a good handful of times, but Shellie and I just met on Sunday and did this shoot on Tuesday! Fast friends, imho.
We braved the late spring Austin Sun that was pushing temps into the 90’s already and we were working towards a desaturated, hard sky look with a bare beauty dish (without the center reflector) pushing a sharp edge of light around. For the top image, the sun was shining directly onto Shellie (in the leather Jacket) while Jenny Lynn had her features brought up with the light from the beauty dish.
